Being a student in the Taunton Public School system for 12 years sculpted me into who I am today, an scholar who is prepared for college! I owe so much of my personal growth to TPS, as I was a member of many clubs and sports during my time in the school system. So many of the teachers are so caring and are willing to go out of their way to help you in anything you need.

I have been in the Taunton school district all my life, from elementary school to high school. I struggles a little in elementary school but they ensured that I advanced in that particular subject. Teacher did the best to ensure that I passed and they went above and beyond. From middle school to high school I was an honor roll student and now in college I have a 3.8 GPA. The Taunton Public Schools system is an awesome system with great teacher and employees.
I am Senior at Taunton High School, I've been in Taunton schools my whole life and i have to say that I've enjoyed my time but things need to go back to the way they were in 50's or so because the amount of disrespect between not only student to teacher or teacher to teacher but student to student is absolutely ridiculous, times where kids actually respected each other and had manners and didn't do stupid things just for a good time.
